Young Girls Should Never Skip Breakfast

The Journal of the American Dietetic Association recently released information regarding the benefits of young girls eating breakfast regularly. More than 2,300 girls aged 11.5-18.6 were measured 6 times for specific parameters, including body fat and waist-to-hip ratio. The results were quite indicative of the benefits of eating breakfast. The girls who ate cereal on a greater percentage of days exhibited higher levels of physical activity and lower levels of body fat and total cholesterol than the girls who failed to eat breakfast regularly.
